NCUFC Urges Homeowners to Hire Certified Arborists to Safely Care for Trees Before and After Storms

July 8, 2021 GMT

RALEIGH, NC / ACCESSWIRE / July 8, 2021 / The North Carolina Urban Forest Council (NCUFC) urges homeowners to hire certified arborists to safely care for trees - before and after storms.

“Only hire certified arborists from insured and reputable companies to prepare and care for your trees before storms, and to complete cleanup after storms,” said NCUFC Executive Director Leslie Moorman. “Certified arborists are qualified to determine which trees can be preserved and which must be removed.”

NCUFC released two public service announcements (PSAs) to encourage homeowners to safely care for trees before and after storms. The PSAs are a joint effort by NCUFC, the North Carolina Forest Service, and NC State Cooperative Extension.
